Driver's side air blowing warm, won't change


Sounds like there is a crack in the vent that leads to the drivers side, and hot air from the engine is leaking through.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.
